Chair Revamp Project

When I moved into my maisonette, the previous owner left behind a few bits and pieces of random furniture, including this gold chair.
Well, I thought it had potential! It's very comfortable to sit in, and the design seemed pretty cute. I just wasn't crazy about the fabric seat and the overpowering gold tones.

And so, with my dad's help, I set about transforming it! He spray painted it, we went to Dunelm Mill (why did nobody tell me about this amazing shop before? They sell just about everything!) and bought pleather from the haberdashery, and a cute cushion. The next part consisted of stapling the right amount of pleather over the seat. And well...that's about it! A very simple project.

Here's the finished result:

Pretty cute, huh? I'm really into pastel interior design at the moment, so this is perfect for me. The cushion from Dunelm Mill was only £2.49, and it's super puffy and comes with straps for you to secure to chairs. What a bargain!

That's about all I have to share with you today. Tomorrow is Frock On! and I'm super excited, though very anxious! I have a lot of things to bring with me (things for the "bring and buy" sale, food, umbrella, miscellaneous useful stuff, a book for the journey...) so I think I'll just bring a small suitcase! This really is one of those occasions where those shopping trolleys that you tend to see old people wheeling around would come in handy.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and hopefully I'll have some fabulous photos to share with you all from the event next time I post!
